Healthy Relationships

When it comes to relationships, there are many factors that make the relationship work.

Relationships aren’t perfect & that is something I am starting to understand.

But I do know that the below are factors in making a relationship work to its full potential.

  • Respect:
    • This is a big one, you must respect each other from get-go.
    • Respect their thoughts, decisions & actions.
    • Being aware of how the other person is feeling
    • Being aware of the other persons insecurities
    • Reassuring our partners to make sure they are feeling secured.
  • Accountability:
    • Admits mistakes (or when wrong)
    • Accepts responsibility for behaviors, attitudes & values.
  • Trust:
    • Accepting each others word
    • Giving the benefit of the doubt
    • Believing they wouldn’t do anything to hurt you
    • Believing that they would not do anything to jepodise the relationship
